Hmmm even for November that's a pretty high price to pay for 8GB RAM
Comparison: in June-August, I paid $200 for 8GB of these G.Skill ECOs RAM, rated an improved 1600 CL7-8-7. But at the time DDR3 RAM was $80-100 for 4GB no matter what anyway.
In November 8GB of RAM began hitting $100 prices

yea, the problem was, there wasnt much selection of ram at the time(for where i live), its still 1600 ram, and its not overly lardge, so i can put pretty much any cpu cooler on it. and ram is something, i dont want to buy over the mail, do to its sensitivity to shiping.

alright, will def not get a 590, maybe down the line, 2 570s/80s, but who knows what will be out then.

I would also say go 460 sli, the 5xx series is just a refab. I would either wait to upgrade to a new process (the 6xx and beyond should be <40nm I believe) or get the second 460 and overclock the pair up to at least 560 clocks.

You mentioned being a warhammer fan. Have you tried Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II and the subsequent expansions / stand alones? Absolute blast, will push your processor, and pretty good implementation of the rules. Retribution would be the one to try now, it just came out as a stand alone Dawn of War II game to good reviews. Also the DOW2 / Chaos Rising pack goes on sale on steam every so often. I picked it up a few months ago before retribution and am still slaying Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids in both campaign and last stand.

How are the temps on the 1090 at 4 with that 212? Could consider a better cooling solution. Going underwater could be a good project and will last you through more upgrades. Might hold off on putting the motherboard underwater and just upgrade to a 990fx board when they come out. nvidia reached an agreement with amd and sli should be officially supported on the 990fx boards.

tldr: Second 460, better cpu cooler, and Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II

EDIT: rereading you already have sli 460s. keep those and wait for the amd 7xxx and nvidia 6xx for the process shrinks. The new amd cards might be here before bf3.

I would go with Mushkin instead of Kingston. It's either Mushkin or Corsair. Mushkin is basically AMD (price/performance) but has really good performance and Corsair is just performance. That's just my opinion though. Get the 1055T instead. The higher numbers are really just speed boosts which you won't really need. If you do need it, just overclock it.

the 212 sucks, get this zalman they come with a thermal compound

SLI gtx 560s would be better than 460s

Or get a Venomous X from FrozenCPU. Great cooler. If the mounting plate isn't good, go to the Vendors section on here and get a FTW PC mounting plate. Works with the Megahalem Rev B (another great cooler) and the Venomous X.
